WSOP Europe Main Event: Day 2 Winners And Losers

After two starting days where a record 593 players entered the €10.400 WSOP Europe Main Event, the tournament has now completed Day 2 with 115 players still remaining in the action.
At stake is not only the most coveted gold bracelet of the poker series but also a top prize of €1.4 million ($1.9 million), which is testimony to the popularity of Cannes as a venue for the event. As a WSOP spokesperson commented:
“Not many tournaments can ever claim to jump up 71 percent in attendance from one year to the next. But as is typical, the World Series of Poker stands as the exception to just about everything.”
So far, leading the remaining field is Dutch pro Constant Rijkenberg, famous for having won the EPT Remo in 2009 for $2,139,921. Rijkenberg currently has a 462,800 chip stack with 2-times WSOP winner Hoyt Corkins not far behind on 429,900.
Other notable big stacks left in the competition include Jake Cody (323k, 4th), Erik Seidel (292k, 9th) and Shawn Buchanan (292k, 10th), while players with middling stacks include James Dempsey (231,100), Patrik Antonius (228,100), Liv Boeree (202,300), Barny Boatman (185,200), Chris Moorman (167,800) and Victor Ramdin (156,900).
Top pros still left in the hunt, but hoping for a good start to Day 3 include Tony G (135,400), Freddy Deeb   (133,200), Robert Mizrachi (110,600), Barry Greenstein (105,600), James Bord  (70,000) and Carlos Mortensen (32,400, 112th).
Amongst those top names having to wait another year for WSOP Europe glory are
Leo Margets, Peter Jetten, Scotty Nguyen, Johnny Chan, Bruno Fitoussi, David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, Sami Kelopuro, David Sands, Nenad Medic, Men Nguyen, Filippo Candio and Randy Dorfman.
Day 3 of the WSOPE Main Event will resume today at 1200 CET when 64 players are expected to make it into the money. Payout will begin at €20,000 for players finishing 57th to 64th, going up to €90,000 for 9th and 10th place finshers.
